Thanks for posting your query.

Normally after delivery up to 6 months iron and calcium supplements are required.At times when not taken properly such kind of problems can occur.

It is good that thyroid is normal.

Please visit your physician for routing health check up. Please discuss the option of getting tested for Vit D,Hemoglobin and B12.

Deficiency of any of them can lead to this kind of problem.

In mean time please do following which should help.
1. Take good diet XXXXXXX in calcium and iron. Take more of XXXXXXX leafy vegetables, milk and milk products.
2. Do some regular light exercise like walking
3. Take proper sleep.
4. Watch your weight. Take at least 3-4 small meals in a day.

I hope this helps
